Well, I dont know if I want to take it or the advanced course, nothing wrong with getting schooled by the guys who know more than you.

Re: opinion from experienced riders

for a beginner's bike, you should buy mine, and fix it just so you know everything about the bike inside and out...it'll help ou a lot, fixing it back up from the condition it's in will give you all the FORCE you will need to know about riding and respecting your bike..., i've give you a badass deal, it's a gixxer 600 2003 with 6300 miles Alstare Edition, i'll give it to you for less than $7000....trust me, I'm REALLY EXPERIENCED!!!
